Default Alltrax - only getting 17-19mph

Precedent 2004 IQ 48V

Old set up
PQ bandit
stock everything with 4G cables
Was getting 23-24mph

New set up
PQ Bandit
Alltrax DCX 400 controller
200/800A solenoid
New MCOR
4G cables
Brand new US batteries date coded Nov (51.6V full static, 45.5V load on steep hill)
Top speed 17-19mph unless I go on a slight down hill then it goes faster - up to 24mph

Tried various curves and set ups on controller nothing gets top speed up even clicking on turbo - all that causes is like a car engine missing effect like a bad spark plug and anyway PQ don't recommend it.

Neighbor has exact same set up and gets 25 mph regularly. Flies part me

Any ideas?

I'm going to switch out the Alltrax and sell it if this can't be fixed

I could be the motor? My stock motor gives 22.5 mph with the Alltrax control in my precedent.

One easy way to test would be stick the stock controller back on and see if the speed comes back.

I'm going to do that. Will report back. It's a new Bandit to as the old one had a bad terminal.

So two things changed at the same time, the controller AND the motor?

Did you have any issues stabbing that motor? Is it turning easily? Talk to PQ, they may need to rework it.

The challenge here is determining the cause with so many new things all at once.
Always determine battery power is up to snuff when investigating a performance issue. Use a voltmeter to determine the lowest pack voltage under load. This will give us some indication of battery health.
What batteries are you running?
How many times have you recharged them?
What is a full charge reading 12 hours after charging?
